Ever felt a "been-there-before" presence at a place you visited... for the first time? If so, you may have stumbled upon a Thin Place, described in Celtic history as places where the veil between this world and another becomes very thin; places where different eras often seem to merge; and places where people feel connected to a stirring presence. In this book you will discover how to identify five ways Thin Places engage with us; how to utilize the low-cost benefits at Thin Places; how to score engagement levels at places you visit; and how to "seed" new Thin Places with your architect.

Wright recounts a solo performance in the Sharp Building stairwell at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The reader enters the performance as a spectator, taken through the action with time markers and italics that signal stage directions to a script they are to perform. Meanwhile, memories unfold and questions arise which elucidate the genesis of the piece and the interior process not available to an actual spectator. Interweaving her own voice with that of a lover, of Italo Calvino, of Marguerite Duras and others, Wright encounters her idealized and fraught relationship to audience, while shifting, in steps, who this audience is. From beloved, to witness, to reader-the imagined audience of the mind encompasses all of these. The semi-private, transitional space of the stairwell incorporates the audience-reader into the staging of the piece, in intimate proximity to each other and the performer. Wright questions how one is changed by these encounters, by being seen; how one can ever be seen; and how the psychic space a performance engenders might act as a holder for public interiority. The text is also an interrogation of its own structure, its relationship to the page. Descending and refolding on itself, can a page become a stairwell? Does that change the linearity of the text? On the page, the reader can circle, repeat, in a way a performance doesn't allow. Can performance have a new life in the architecture of the page?

Thin Places is an eloquent meditation on what it means to move between cultures and how one might finally come home, a particular paradox in a culture that lacks deep ties to the natural world. During the 1990s, Ann Armbrecht, an American anthropologist, made several trips to northeastern Nepal to research how the Yamphu Rai acquired, farmed, and held onto their land; how they perceived their area's recent designation as a national park and conservation area; and whether-as she believed-they held a wisdom about living on the earth that the industrialized West had forgotten. What Armbrecht found instead were men and women who shared her restlessness, people also driven by the feeling that there must be more to life than they could find in their village. Charting Armbrecht's travels in the mountains of Nepal and in the United States, as well as her disintegrating marriage back home, Thin Places is ultimately an exploration not of the sacred far-off but of the sacredness of places that are between?between the internal and external landscape, the self and others, and the self and the land. She finds that home is not a place where we arrive but a way of being in place, wherever that place may be.

When he was asked to summarize his philosophy, Plato reportedly said: Practice dying, which seems a rather strange, even morbid, comment until one realizes that every life consists of passages, some smooth and some not. Within these passages are what John Morgan calls thin places. On a trip to Wales, Morgan discovered that the term thin places is part of Celtic culture. Thin places are those places where the eternal and the temporal touch, if only for a brief glimpse; where you know that life is more than just the obvious. Thin places can be of great beauty, where life's meaning breaks through by the ocean or in the mountains; but thin places can also arise in the life of every person, whether with the birth of a child or the death of a family member. John Morgan believes that being fully awake to such times and places holds a clue to living more deeply and with greater wisdom about what's really important. His poems express this understanding.
